I have noticed since taking away the pacifier that I am getting less milk at my daily 11am pumping session. Is this related to additional time she 's spending at the breast, or is my supply dropping? I used to get 6 oz and now I am down to 4 oz. I like to have a little expressed milk on hand just in case...
Let me know what you all think, please. I would love to hear what happened when your EBF babies gave up their pacifiers. TIA!
DS is 8 months. Just before 7 months his first tooth started coming through - his interest in his paci was fading so we took it away completely. He's got 2 teeth now, and still is quite happy without the paci (i don't even know where it is anymore)...
I noticed my milk waning a little - but I'm positive that in our situation DS was simply drinking more. Today he was eating every 1 1/2 hrs. He'll gnaw on snap peas and devour nectarines... and potatoes every once in a while, but it's all milk... (I actually came online today to post a cry for help - I am EXHAUSTED).
Is it possible your LO is sucking/drinking more now that the paci is gone? Maybe you need to eat/drink more??
I really have no sound advice, I'm a newbie. Hope someone with more knowledge/experience comes along... in the mean time, our LOs are paci free!! That's sorta great, no?? (I'm happy)
covert crunchy wife to & mama to DS02/11. Dreaming of travelling the as soon as we catch up on some
Thanks for your reply! How are things going with you?
I am also so relieved our babies are paci-free. Giving up the paci with a toddler was a looming tantrum mountain I definitely was not looking forward to climbing. I can sympathize with the frequent feedings; we are also on an every hour and a half schedule during the day. Hang in there. My baby spontaneously started sleeping from 9:30p to 5:00a last week after waking up every two hours or so since birth. Miracles do happen ;)
